We appreciate all of the support and positive feedback from our families and friends. We want you to know that we are and will continue to be transparent regarding any suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our facility. Should we have a positive Covid-19 case, we will notify all residents and their representatives quickly.
Currently, we have no suspected or confirmed cases in our resident or staff population. This is a direct result of the hard work or our staff and their strict adherence to the best infection control practices. Our amazing nursing, housekeeping, dietary and ancillary staff are not only working hard to keep everyone well, they are also showing an abundance of love and kindness to our residents. Our residents are doing well and are in good spirits despite these trying circumstances. While you cannot be here, we are here for them.
As mandated by the State of New Jersey for all healthcare facilities, all employees must wear masks at all times. As an extra precaution, our nurses and CNAs are wearing face shields in addition to their surgical masks. This offers another layer of protection to our residents while receiving care.
We conduct a health screening including temperature taking, before anyone is allowed access to our facility. We have very strict guidelines for quarantining staff with any sort of illness, and they are being tested for Covid-19 before being allowed to return to work.
Should we have a COVID-19 case, we have a separate, designated area and dedicated staff for care of such resident(s). N-95 masks, gowns, face shields and gowns are ready for care of a COVID-19 case. We are educating and observing our staff frequently on the best infection control practices within the facility, and those to follow in their home settings.
We are in good stock of personal protective equipment. Our residents have face masks to wear if they are outside of their rooms. We encourage everyone to wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizer often.
Facetime or Skype services are available for you to have face to face calls with your loved one. Please contact Sandy or Sherry in Activities to schedule a session between 10am-3pm daily. You can call for an update or talk with your Resident on a regular phone call at any time.
